Research interests include the synthesis, characterization and evaluation of novel ligands for muscarinic, nicotinic, retinoic acid receptor subtypes and amino/amido-lactone derivatives as potential anticonvulsant agents. A recent interest involves the development of inhibitors of the HMGB-1/DNA interaction using glycyrrhetinic acid as a lead. These compounds are evaluated in a variety of in vivo and in vitro assays through collaboration with investigators in the School of Pharmacy and the School of Medicine.
